Taro BOVE has recently... He focuses on the structure of noh, which stimulates audience’s imagination and encourages them to create a world that resonates in the blank for themselves. In this piece, he works on the mugen noh [spiritual noh] play masterpiece Izutsu with young and mid-careered noh musicians from Kyoto. The latter half of the play is re-interpreted and is presented in a form that can be situated in a lobby space of a theater or museum, keeping the essence of the presentation form of noh. A possibility of new “space” is created through interaction between noh and contemporary dance.
